the subject to a more specific one. and i asked general dempsey just the other day. in afghanistan as we are transitioning out, it it seems to be one of the key questions is who do the people of afghanistan support? from intelligence perspective are they the karzai regime or with the government? are they with the taliban or what is the status of the sort of on the ground public opinion in that country? >> i think it's very ch a mixed bag andi inthe forthcinelecti assuming it's held time has already generated a great deal of political activity and i think that's going to be a real indicator of where these loyalties lie. the areas controlled by the taliban, that is principally the rural areas. i think there are probably in control and hold sway. in the urban areas like kabul probably the central government under karzai has more contraction but bear in mind afghanistan is very much a tribal country, sowhtifici a a country in a conventional since when we think about a country. loyalties i think lie mostly on a tribal basis. >> one other more specific question on the sequester dollars. as eve
